Conductive Polymer Market, COVID-19 Effect:
In 2020, the COVID-19 lockdown has had a negative effect on the growth of conductive polymer market. During the pandemic, solar sector has experienced challenges owing to the coronavirus, such as shortage of workers because of social distancing and decline in expenditure by manufacturers. These factors have had a considerable effect on the global market because solar industry is one of the major consumers of conductive polymers. However, in recent times, Austria government has granted about $1.2 billion in the form of special grants to promote investments of approximately 50%, which includes renovation of schools, kindergartens and retirement homes. Also, this fund will boost innovations in public transport, renewable energy production and growth of broadband network during the crisis time. This aspect is expected to drive the growth of the market in the forecast time.
Conductive Polymer Market, Dynamics:
The global conductive polymer market is significantly driven by increasing adoption of conductive polymers in renewable energy production. This is owing to rising demand for electricity production from renewable sources is driving need of conductive polymers.
